Lydia went to art school and created performative videos that took the viewer through various acts of contemplation, contemplation, and contemplation of contemplation. This exhibition showcased these works in a gallery that was designed by a young woman who will soon be installing them in a museum. She has already created a room that will be located in the Museu dArt Contemporânea in Porto, Portugal, where the artist will continue her research into the possibility of her own physical presence in the gallery. In the meantime, she has been invited to perform in a gallery she has created in her own studio. She is currently working on a video to be shown in the space.The young artist is drawn to the idea of the subjective, of the body, and of the body as a site of communication and expression, but she is not simply looking for a way to express the absence of a political or social agenda. In fact, it is her intention to create a space where all people can come together to experience themselves, to experience the reality of their own existence together, and to share this reality with others. In this sense, the artist does not only refer to the power relations of the gallery space, but also to other spaces and cultures. The video Installation du monde (Installed Universe), 2002, is a series of drawings in which the artist compares various possibilities of the construction of a work of art. In the drawings, one sees a number of objects that are part of the artists own studio, but which also feature in the work of artists such as Christo, Helmut Newton, and Louisa Samson, among others. In this way, the artist makes visible the spaces in which ideas, materials, and ideas are worked up in the studio. In other words, the artist is seeking to reveal the artistic process in a way that is intimate, in a way that is not voyeuristic or sensationalistic, but that is focused on the creative process.
Lydia went to art school and created performative videos that took place in the galleries of the Museum of Modern Art in New York. She was also a member of the group Lara Nüsse and a member of the Zentrum für Kunst und Medientechnologie in Hamburg. Although she has been widely considered a visionary, her reputation has only just recently begun to take off. Her latest film, Einmal mit Einkaufswelten (Eating with Einkauf), is shown at the Kunstverein Bonn in a group show. The film, which was made in collaboration with David Epping, a New York artist and frequent collaborator of Lydia, is a personal portrait of Lydia herself. It documents her eating with Einkauf, a fictional woman from the musical Hamilton. Lydia is a sort of fictional character whose name is derived from a combination of the names of the musicals characters: Einkauf, Einkauf, and Einkauf. In this film, we see Lydia, who is an actress, as she appears on stage as Einkauf, a fictional character who appears in a number of other films, including that of Julia Roberts and the one by Alexander Payne. In the film, Einkaufs role is not only that of Einkauf, the fictional character, but that of the actress, who is presented as an object of desire for the viewer.The films and videos on display here are not the only work by Lydia. On display are a number of her drawings and sculptures, and she also makes films. However, these works are the most interesting in terms of their use of video as a means of social critique. In the video Untitled (Nostalgic), 2002, she explores the possibility of her own identity, as an artist.
explore the nature of the body, the complexity of the self, and the limits of language. This exhibition, titled The Body in the Mirror: An Autobiography, was an attempt to use the artists body as a means of attaining a deeper understanding of the self.In the video The Dilemma of the Self (all works 2010), Lydia performs a series of complex actions. In this work, she talks about her recent experience of a brain tumor, her dreams of being a monster, and her fears of being a woman. Her speech becomes increasingly shrill, and the words appear in a voice-over that speaks of her fears of being a woman, her fears of the monster, and her frustration at not being a man. The voice-over also uses a variety of images, including a women face, a womans face, and a womans face in a wig. The voice-over also refers to Lydias own body as a mirror, the mirror of her fears of being a woman, her fears of being a monster. It is hard to say whether this mirroring of self is a reflection on the artist, who has often commented on the fact that her body is a mirror of the world, or a metaphor for the artist, who has to confront the fact that her body is a monster. The body itself is a monster, and the artist has to deal with this fact.
Lydia went to art school and created performative videos that examine the form of expression and the potential of the body. In her first solo exhibition in New York, her video The End of the World, 2006, was projected on a wall that was also covered in white paper. It featured a series of photographs of the artist, her friends, and an empty liquor bottle, each labeled with a name of a drink. Titled The End of the World, the video ended with a woman dressed in the same clothes as the previous one, but now with a different name. This was followed by a quote from a poem by the German writer Karl Marx: The work of art can never be an end in itself, but a means of creating a world. And indeed, the video was divided into two parts: a narrative about a woman named Lydia, who is in her early twenties and has been living in London for the past year, and a film that was also presented in the gallery. The narrative was based on an interview with the artist in which she talks about her life, her experiences, and her hopes for her future. The film, The End of the World, is also based on an interview with the artist. The filmmaker, who also asked the artist to participate in the interview, also asked the artist to do something else for the sake of the film. The two agreed that the other should do something to end the work, and so the two actors took turns in the interview. In the end, though, they both failed to find anything worthwhile to say.In the film, the narrator narrates a tale about a woman named Lydia who travels to New York to meet her boyfriend, an artist. The three of them go to a club, which is where the story begins. There she meets a man named Philip, who is an artist. The two of them become engaged, but Philip does not want to remain in the picture. He wants to leave, and so he takes her to his hotel.
Lydia went to art school and created performative videos that combined the insights of dance, theater, and performance. On the occasion of her exhibition at the Galerie de la Villette, the artist presented her latest work, In search of the unknown, she found herself in the unknown.The first room contained a group of photographs, which showed the artist in various situations, from street to studio, in different states of undress, and placed her in front of a mirror. She appeared to be performing in public places—an old-fashioned movie house, a subway platform, a park—but with her clothes off, she remained anonymous. A light went on and the photograph was taken, but it was too late: The image was already gone. The light came from a video. In the next room, a video was projected on the wall. A woman entered the frame, turned, and was followed by two women, who in turn followed her into the video. The video stopped, and the two women who had followed the woman into the video continued to do so until the video was over. The woman who had followed the woman into the video had disappeared again.The video was accompanied by a song, and the two dancers—a man and a woman—enacted a number of movements that were performed by the two women. One was the same as the other. They played with their own bodies, with their feet, hands, and mouths. The two were also the same size, standing about six and a half feet tall and about six and a half feet wide. They wore heels, white socks, and black loafers. The heels were covered with plastic gloves. They put on shoes of their own design, with their feet in the shoes, and stepped on them. Their feet touched the floor, and they carried on a conversation that was interrupted by a passing car. The car stopped and the pair got out of the car, where they sat on a bench and talked about their lives and about the city.
